The Apostle Peter's first letter was written to the early Christians living throughout the Roman provinces of Asia Minor. Not unlike today, the early Christians struggled to live out their faith in an intensely pluralistic context in which the majority of their friends and neighbors believed very different things about the world than they did. Peter has much to teach us today about how to embody the gospel in a predominantly non-Christian society and offers us encouragement as we seek to thoughtfully engage our contemporary culture.
